Shenault Jr. Finds The End Zone For First Time Since Week One

Dec 8, 2020

Laviska Shenault Jr. (Jacksonville) scored a touchdown for the second time in his career in Week 13 of #NFLBuffs.
 
Right Place, Right Time
Shenault Jr. caught three passes for 38 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 overtime loss to Minnesota. The rookie wideout also ran for 30 yards on two attempts. It was the second time Shenault Jr. has found the endzone in his rookie season and the first since Week 1. 
 
The ball always seemed to find the hands of Shenault Jr. in Boulder and that is exactly what happened on his 28-yard touchdown grab in the first quarter.
